    This question came up a couple of times from users so I figured I'll document how to achieve a layout that shows a list of items and allows you to pick an item from this list to show the details of this item on the same page.

    list with details image

    The default layout that ABCS creates is a list on one page with the ability to select an item and go see the details or edit that record on another page.

    To combine the two into a single page, start from the edit or the details page that ABCS created.

    On this page you then add the table or list for the same object, and set the link on a field to do the edit or details - this basically means that you'll do a navigation to the same page.

    If you now run the page you'll be able click items in the table and see their details on the same page.

    Here is a quick demo of how it is done:

    Note that if you want this to be the default view that people see when navigating to your app - just update the navigation menu of your application to reflect this.

    Jdeveloper logoWhen you create extensions to Oracle E-Business Suite OA Framework pages, you must use the version of Oracle JDeveloper shipped by the Oracle E-Business Suite product team. 

    The version of Oracle JDeveloper is specific to the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications Technology patch level, so there is a new version of Oracle JDeveloper with each new release of the Oracle E-Business Suite Applications Technology patchset.

    The Oracle Applications (OA) Extensions for JDeveloper 10g are now available for E-Business Suite Release 12.2.6.  For details, see:

    The same Note also lists the latest OA Extension updates for EBS 11i, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2.

    Integration is the term we employ for ‘what ties systems together into end-to-end interaction flows’. Integration describes what we have to do to make applications in one domain talk to those in another, or systems in one enterprise talk to those in another. And to systems running in one cloud interact with those running in another cloud or those running on premises. Integration is ideally approached based on standard based service interfaces and encapsulated implementations. With generic integration facilities handling most of the protocol, format, and technology specific details, and translating interactions as much as possible to standard SOAP and REST exchanges. And with that generic platform handling monitoring, security, system errors and state when asynchronous exchanges are required.

    The Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS from now on) provides the cloud based integration platform that can run and manage these integration flows. ICS exposes a browser based user interface through which the integration is first designed, then activated and managed. ICS provides adapters to easily interact with a number of popular SaaS applications (Salesforce, Oracle HCM Cloud, Oracle ERP Cloud, Oracle SalesCloud, Service Cloud | Right Now, Eloqua, CPQ, Gmail & Google Task, Evernote, …) and Platform Services and technologies (Oracle Database, Oracle Messaging Cloud Service, FTP, SOAP and REST services) as well as a collection of Social Networks (Twitter, Linked In, Facebook). With ICS it is straightforward to connect to any of these as a target and expose an tailor made, easy to use interface to ICS consumers. Some of these can also be a source for interactions: events in SaaS applications  – such as creation or update of a business object – can trigger ICS to perform an integration flow – pushing data derived from the event to some target.

    In this article I will introduce some of the core terminology for ICS and demonstrate my first steps. I will create a SOAP service that exposes a simple operation to convert distances in meters to their equivalent in yards. This service is the based on an existing conversion service offered by a third party. ICS is used to virtualize this service and map to and from between the business friendly interface that I have devised and the pre-existing service interface.


    You will see how I have to first create two connections. Connection is the ICS term for an external link – either outbound from ICS to target systems  (comparable to business services in Service Bus or a Reference in SCA composites) or inbound into ICS (from external consumers), similar to Proxy Service in Service Bus and Service in SCA composites. One connection is outbound, to the third party service that does distance conversions. The other connection is inbound – it describes the SOAP interface that I want to expose from ICS to my consumers. Read the complete article here.

    Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service (ABCS for short) enables you (and your business users) to create rich web and mobile apps in a quick visual way from a browser with no-coding required (but coding is possible).

    The UI that ABCS creates is based on Oracle JET, which many of our customers love because its responsiveness and lightness.

    Some Oracle ADF customers have been on the hunt for a new client-side UI solution for their apps, and Oracle JET is certainly a technology that will work for those use cases.

    A nice feature for Oracle ADF customers is that their data-access and business-service layer is built in a reusable way that is decoupled from the UI. And now, with the ability to expose ADF Business Components as REST service, they can use any modern UI framework to develop the UI including Oracle JET. There are already many blog entries with code samples on how to write JET apps that connect to ADF Business Components

    But what if we could give you the simplicity of ABCS for the UI creation, the power of JET for the UI experience, and the ability to leverage your existing investment in Oracle ADF all without writing a single line of code manually?

    Well, in the demo below I'll show you how you can reuse the logic you have in Oracle ADF Business Component and build a JET based UI on top of them in a declarative way with Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service.

    Basically you get the best of each tool - and you don't need to write a single line of code !


    In the 9 minutes demo I'll show you how to:

    • Create an ADF Business Components layer on top of Oracle Database in the Cloud - (0:00)
    • Expose the ADF Business Components as REST service - (1:45)
    • Deploy the REST service to Java Cloud Service (JCS) - (2:19)
    • Create an Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service application - (6:00)
    • Add an ADF BC REST Service as a data source to the app - (6:30)
    • Create the user interface to your application - (7:20)

    (Times are indicated in case you want to skip sections you are already familiar with) 

    If you are interested in a bit of a background on why this is so simple, the answer is that ABCS was built to enable easy integration with Oracle SaaS leveraging the REST services they expose. To quickly build the full app with all the defaulting you are seeing in there (full CRUD with a simple drag and drop) ABCS needs to know some basic information about the data that it needs to render (primary key, data types, etc). Since Oracle SaaS is built on Oracle ADF, we built into ABCS the capability to analyze the describe that ADF BC REST services provide. This makes it dead simple to consume ADF REST service in ABCS, whether these services come from Oracle's apps - or your own ADF apps :-) 

    As you can see there is a great synergy between Oracle ADF, Oracle Application Builder Cloud Service and Oracle JET.

    Today, during our Data Integration webcast, Benjamin Perez-Goytia from our Oracle A-Team illustrated this exciting integration: Database Cloud Service (DBCS), Big Data Preparation (BDPCS), and Business Intelligence Cloud Service (BICS) with Oracle Data Integrator (ODI).You can view the recording here.

    Here are some of the steps, details, and highlights he went through during the demonstration:

                ·Uploading data from an on-premise Oracle database into DBCS using ODI.  Datapump was used in conjunction with secured copy (SCP).  The Datapump Knowledge Module (KM) had been modified to perform a secured copy command to move the on-prem datapump files into DBCS.

                ·Once data was loaded into DBCS (with datapump), ODI populated a small star schema with dimensions and fact tables (on DBCS).  This was be done with the ODI agent on JCS.

                ·The fact table was then populated with Oracle Partition Exchange.

                ·An aggregate file from the fact table was written on disk (on JCS).  ODI performed this operation with the agent on JCS.

                ·ODI then sent the file into Storage CS using CLI.  The Storage CS instance was the one used by BDP as a source.

                ·On BDP, a transform script was created to clean the file, and publish it into BICS.  A BDP policy was executed on BDP to publish the data into BICS.

                ·On BICS, a Visual Analyzer dashboard was been created and shown to view the data.

                ·In addition, the BICS dashboard was refreshed to demonstrate how data changes each time a new partition is loaded into the fact table.

    It was fun – and really interesting!Did you miss it?  View the webcast here.

    Thanks again Benjamin!

    In this article, I will show a little bit more of ICS – the Integration Cloud Service. In a previous article, I have introduced some concepts – such as Connection, Integration, Business Identifier. I have shown how to create an integration connecting two connections – an inbound and an outbound one (both of type SOAP).

    In picture, that looks like this:

    In this article, I will create a new connection (REST API style) and create an integration to expose this connection, leveraging the same outbound connection:

    After creating the integration, I will activate it and invoke the new REST API from a web browser and from SOAP UI.

    The steps are:

    • Create REST Connection
    • Create and activate the Integration (with the mappings for request and response and the business identifiers for tracking)
    • Invoke the REST API
    Configure REST Connection

    Go to the ICS Home Page and navigate to the Connections page.

    Create a New Connection. Read the complete article here.

    Here's an overview of CSS tools in NetBeans that I've found to be quite useful. Below, in the first example, the value of "class" is set to "foo", which does not exist in any of the available CSS stylesheets. NetBeans offers to create the rule in a stylesheet of my choosing and to import that stylesheet into my HTML file:

    Below, the value of "id" is "foo", which doesn't exist in any of the stylesheets. NetBeans suggests to create it for you and import the related stylesheet:

    In this case, no stylesheets exist and NetBeans offers to create a new stylesheet in which it will write the currently undefined rule:

    Below, you can see I am using code completion and am shown all the available rules for the "class" attribute, from all the stylesheets, regardless of whether those stylesheets have been imported:

    In the scenario below, I hold down the Ctrl key and click on "foo", i.e., the value of "class", because I want to jump to the definition of "foo" in the stylesheet in which it is defined. However, NetBeans tells me that there are two different "foo" rules available. One of those is from a stylesheet that has been imported and the other is from an unrelated stylesheet, i.e., one that has not yet been imported:

    And here I have imported the previously unrelated stylesheet so that now NetBeans shows me both stylesheets where "foo" is defined and lets me choose which one should be opened.

    Pretty handy!

    Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is now covered by Premier Support to September 30, 2023. This is documented here:

    Oracle Lifetime Support table for EBS

    Premier Support includes new EBS 12.2 patches for:

    • Individual product families (e.g. Oracle Financials)
    • Quarterly security updates released via the Critical Patch Update process
    • New technology stack certifications with server-based components
    • New certifications for end-user desktops and mobile devices

    What are the minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.2?

    The minimum patching baselines for EBS 12.2 have not changed.  New EBS 12.2 patches are created and tested against the minimum patching baseline documented in Section 4.1, "E-Business Suite 12.2 Minimum Prerequisites" in this document:

    All EBS 12.2 customers must apply the minimum patch prerequisites to be eligible for Premier Support. Those patches include the suite-wide EBS 12.2.3 Release Update Pack and a small number of technology stack infrastructure updates.

    Instead of applying the minimum baseline

    Many new updates have been released since that patching baseline was originally published.  These new patches contain stability, performance, and security-related updates and are strongly recommended for all customers. 

    If you haven't applied any of those updates yet, the simplest solution would be to apply the latest suite-wide EBS 12.2.6 Release Update Pack (RUP).  That way, you get all of the 12.2 minimum patching requirements and the latest updates simultaneously.

    If you've reached this blog article via a search engine, it is possible that a new Release Update Pack has been released since this article was first published.  Click on the "Certifications" link in the sidebar for a pointer to the latest EBS 12.2 RUP.

    The Oracle Integration Cloud Service – ICS – comes loaded with a rich collection of Cloud Adapters. These adapters facilitate the integration with SaaS applications and internet services of various natures. These include Oracle SaaS applications (such as RightNow, Eloqua, ECommerce Cloud, ERP Cloud, HCM Cloud), on premises ERP applications (SAP, EBusiness Suite, Siebel) and assorted third party applications such as SalesForce, Facebook, Google Mail and Task, LinkedIn and Evernote. Through these adapters, interacting with said applications and services becomes a simple, declarative operation instead of a custom programming effort.

    In this article, I will use the Twitter Adapter to create a connection to a Twitter Account (leveraging the Twitter API under the covers). The Twitter Adapters exposes over a dozen operations. I will use just the operation to publish a message (aka Tweet) in this example. From ICS, I will expose an integration through a simple REST connection. This allows trusted consumers to publish Tweets in a very easy way – leaving the authorization details and the API intricacies to ICS.

    The steps I went through:

    • Grant access to [ICS Connection] app in the Twitter developer page and generate API Key and Consumer Key
    • Create a new ICS Connection based on Twitter Adapter; set up the API Key and Consumer Key
    • Create an ICS REST Connection (to expose)
    • Create an integration – between REST Connection as inbound (source) to Twitter Connection (as outbound destination); configure the endpoint (inbound) and operation (inbound and outbound)
    • Create the mappings for request and response
    • Define the tracking – business identifiers
    • Activate the integration
    • Test the exposed REST connection from any REST client, for example SoapUI, to Tweet a message through a simple REST POST call

    Most of these steps are explained by the screenshots you will find below. Read the complete article here.

    The purpose of this blog is to provide simple steps to move Oracle Integration Cloud Service (ICS) integrations between different ICS environments. Oracle ICS provides export and import utilities to achieve integration promotion.

    A typical use-case is to promote tested integrations from Test ICS Environment to Production ICS Environment, in preparation for a project go-live. Usually the Connection endpoints used by the integrations will be different on Test and Production Environments.

    The main steps involved in code promotion for this typical use-case are as follows

    • Export an integration from Test ICS
    • Import the integration archive on Prod ICS
    • Update Connection details and activate the integration on Prod ICS Environment
    Export an integration from Test ICS

    Login to Test ICS
    Search and locate the integration on Test ICS
    Select ‘Export’ and save the integration archive to the file system. Read the complete article here.
